great idea, D! :biggrin2:
Here's the pdf of my Power Point presentation of the twelve-minute talk. Please bear in mind that: 1) the target audience was a group not expected to know an octopus from an octagon, and 2) you do not get the benefit of my powerful and gripping narrative, just the outline on the slides.

Gotta thank Tony for the newsletter mention, but must clear up a slight misunderstanding. Upon entering grad school in August, I had no major advisor, and was therefore enrolled as a “no major” student until I could find one, a process which happily ended this week.
In the interim, I enrolled in a research methods class and in University of North Texas’s ONLY marine biology class. For that class, I gave a presentation on “Octopus Minds”.
My background is actually in odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) and in aquatic macroinvertebrates as indicators of stream quality.
Under my new advisor, I’ll be working with the use of conservation corridors as tools for species diversity and habitat management. Will still be visiting TONMO regularly and reading the many octpusseran books you all have so kindly recommended. Thank you all.
